ACREAGE: All acreages listed are estimates taken from the county assessor’s records, FSA records and/or aerial photos.
SURVEY: Sellers reserve the right to determine the need for a survey and the type of survey provided. If an existing legal description is adequate for title insurance for the tract, no new survey will be completed. If the existing legal description is not sufficient to obtain title insurance, a survey will be completed, the cost of which will be shared 50/50 by Winning Bidder(s) and Sellers. Sellers will choose the type of survey to be completed and warrant that it will be sufficient to provide an owner’s title insurance policy for the tract. If a survey is completed, the purchase price for the surveyed tract will be adjusted, up or down, to the exact surveyed acres. The price per acre will be the auction price bid for the tract, divided by the tract acreage estimated in the auction brochure.
